Holiday Bliss

I finally downloaded our pictures from the 4th. I didn't really take many pictures this year believe or not! I was having so much fun, I just didn't take the time to worry about getting the perfect photo. It was nice to sit back and relax and enjoy the evening. There were 12 of us here for BBQ'd hamburgers, hotdogs, the best potato salad ever (courtesy of our neighbor Rebecca) chips & dip and yummy desserts. My mom and dad inlaw were here too, and it was so funny to watch them. They are from Central CA, and pretty much have always lived in what we would call "out in the country", where fireworks have never been allowed. They just can't believe how the whole block comes out and does fireworks, and how many! My hubby had the same reaction when he was here "in the city" for his first 4th of July. I've turned him into a city boy now, so it's not quite so amazing to him. His dad was out in the middle of our street video-ing up and down the block in awe at all the fireworks going on. I had to laugh at how normal this is for me, but is still so new to others. A night of memories for us and them.
I hope you had a wonderful 4th, I sure did.
